Event details

In a legendary time of heroes and warriors, Prince Beowulf battles demons and magical beasts.

The oldest surviving poem in Old English, Beowulf is a fantasy saga which has inspired countless retellings of the myth, including Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings.

Having formerly worked with the likes of Duran Duran and The Rolling Stones, Armonico Consort’s composer-in-residence Toby Young (former BBC Proms Young Composer of the Year) has set this touching epic drama to music.

Written for soprano, choir, harp, keyboards and children’s choir, with strong folk-pop influences, and a gripping script from one of the authors of Have I Got News For You, Beowulf will entertain the whole family.

Armonico Consort and Academy Singers
Soprano - Elin Manahan Thomas
Harp - Anne Denholm
Keyboards - Toby Young
Narrator - Julian Glover
Director - Christopher Monks

To continue your adventure, journey over to West Stow Country Park for a family experience on the award winning Beowulf and Grendel trail. Walk through the Anglo-Saxon landscape and discover wonderful sculptures themed around the famous saga.
